Imagine a shopping dress
He would address
garments made of linen and cotton
and he would wait
most of the time.
But as a senior that wanted to preserve his image as a Hashemite
he would wear the turban, the turban
was a statement at that time.
You wanted to decrease that proceeds were a sell tap
any proceeds go for anything on your head.
So he would always wear a turban most of the time wearing a turban, even when he was younger. You remember when I said to you that the mother of the nonmetallic would put the turban Why? Because he's going to need the scholar to go into the circle at that point. It's like going for a job interview, you dress

But she didn't.
My responsibility in life, my mission in life

This is what I want to do. This is my mission in life, if I can focus on detail, if I can give him all my life.
To me, this compensates for everything.
Brothers and sisters, I want to tell you that shopping would not have been better

went to court as a witness.
And she came with a woman
as a witness.
And she came with a man. So there were three witnesses coming to witness,
before a judge and the judge, what he wanted to do is that,
like the police today, when they interrogate
they don't introduce suspects, for example.
and will ask you questions, and then we'll ask the same questions,
etc, by way of
the judge wanted to do the same.
He wanted to separate the two women from the man.
Then she wanted to separate the two women.
He wants to separate the two women for the Father. He said, You can't do that.
When he mentions about witnesses,
to female witnesses, they should be to why what's the reason for that? If one of them to make a mistake or error,
that means, it means that the other is listening.
that means that the two
have to be together?
I asked you, have you ever felt
We are talking about we are talking about the simple,
easy to choose? What kinds of people were brought out by this decide what kind of society what kinds of values, what kinds of ideas? What is the system, we are talking about the society that when people want to remind each other when they want to cry, they go to a young boy to listen to him. We are talking about a mother that is stable, and courageous, to stay to the judge who has to be tough. And she has the courage to say to him, Look, you are wrong. You can't do that. We are talking about a witness that is thinking that is contemplating
every word that I just mentioned, and looking out for any errors and is able to provide the evidence
of the situation. Let's say I think Allah

That today, when we begin our history, with Mecca, Medina, we have to begin with human suffering in Palestine,
to zoom the camera on the role of the Mother, don't neglect this role. From beginning begin the book with chapter two, chapter one, and in chapter one, there is no suffering, there is the model.
The model goes alongside.
But behind the curtains.
Yes, the camera.
The camera, we see through the camera. So the camera like now the camera is focusing on me, here someone is bluffing someone is keeping something all
the seminar showing a treat because I'm doing this
with the same with the same the camera is moving. But
what I hope to do is to shift the camera to these people. Because to me, they are very real.
To me to tell you that go back home and take care of your mother and father
and daughter, see you say to me, my mother passed away, then when you get married, make sure
that you are a decent mother.
not just to work as a dancer.
But to be interesting.
to revive itself, it doesn't have to be for you.
But at least
dedicate your life to him. Don't make him watch Telly topics and ignore ignore him.
ignore your sources. This is very important.
We are talking about
which was the customer at that time
that you that you teach. This was like today's
custom when you send your children to the nursery to learn English.
to mingle with the rest of the children at that time.
It was the first symbol to send their children to the site
to learn how to write Arabic
expectedly to become powerful.
And that was the mission. That was the plan. I'm traveling all the way from Palestine to Mecca,
summer or winter resorts. But as a mission of Serbia and mission to make my son a decent boy, he could have stayed in Palestine. She could have neglected her child, she could have remarried
another man who would abuse or beat up suffering and make him sick of his life.
This would have happened. Of course this could have not happened. And she could have married to a nice guy who would have cared more for the company
to rationalize what's going next.
Let's go to the positive.
The positive reality was that he went to describe
what you didn't have the financial means you didn't have the money to give to someone to give to the future.
Time and remember, they were not funded by the state. They were independent scholars. So you would open your own Skype or your own capacity with the children health
To write and how to become a monana. These days,
every boy would come and he would take
And here you see, if you want to
understand history in western terms, you have no guessing from outside the private sphere of the household to the public sphere and meeting with the teacher, or the teacher holding hands with

he would say, Fine, I will take him.
During my absence, that's when I'm outside of the club. He's in charge of the club.
In this moment, with the society gives an opportunity to children
to prove themselves
it's not oppression, it's not that you are too young.
You're too young to administer, no no
in compensation for the fees,
in the Indian subcontinent, and in Manchester, Birmingham, in the bathroom, they do not
please old children, who are five years old, or 10 years old, you're 11 years old, even
here in the West,
students 18. And then
there were different ages. So this was quite healthy, I think that I am testing with
senior placeholder, he would benefit from
different ages, because they are unified according to the age according to the target of what they want to learn.
So that means that not everyone learns the same sort of
quite a senior boy for example.
We have here among the people, a gifted person, seven years old,
sitting in class, being able
to hear out
every boy, a different verse, and he is able to memorize every verse uttered by the Muslim
is not a genius, then what you have here is the person no one knows about yet.
the beauty of it is that society recognize that we have a lot of different people here.
But I know of people that deviated because society, a Muslim society that is does not care about them.
They fade laindon they marginalize them, they ostracize them, they demonize them, he's a rebel.
But in the case of epiphanies, and remember
our talks, remember the case of remember now
we have a society that is able to discover and allow an income. Why am I saying this? Because
he has a gift
for me to take any money from you know, a question of him being in charge of the class. The composition of pain. No, it's now a matter of honor and pleasure.
The necessity to have
and bear in mind,
all learning, it wasn't an organizer or a laptop or a computer, because
the ears are very important, the mind is very important for education, all these things are very important. You might say to me today
I can get it on CD fine, but where do you get the distinction from where do you get the patience, this is
this has to be provided to you, you have to get
you have to attain
devotion, piety, all these things. And this is why I say to you that
this is something I should have mentioned before.
What you realize when you read the Bible
is that the biography is written by the students. And it is all geared towards trying to prove to the reader how magnificent
that person was. So, you want to do that? What do you do? You focus on the weapons of
Very powerful memory, honesty, etc. It's like writing a biography of a medical doctor, what do you focus on? You focus on how articulate and how detailed
the problem with the new generation today when they read these books, they become frustrated? You know why? Because these, they begin to think that
these are the weapons that I need to be like,
No, these are the weapons that you need to become a puppy.
But you don't want to become a puppy. So what do I do with these weapons, you have to redefine the weapon, you have to understand how do these weapons.
So you might not have a powerful memory, it doesn't matter. What matters is what underlies the powerful memories, what does underlie the powerful memory, dedication. These are the new weapons that you have to focus on. Otherwise, they would like to see the public view. This is the life of people in the human dimension.
Because if I engage,
I'm going to tell you that you've had powerful memories, these people have traveled,
traveled a lot.
I don't have to travel if you want to compensate enough.
But try to understand the context of these things and see what fits you in terms of stability.
Can you memorize
in nine days on water
when he was seven
doesn't mean anything at that time.
At that time, you ought to be knowing 1000s of at that time.
are you saying that something wasn't special when he began?
And knowing that?
I say yes.
If he continued to bargain,
he would not have been so special. So you have to do something extra.
You have to go
and pursue knowledge.
He has to go and do something beyond what his classmates do. So after class, His classmates would go and play
football they would play football.
Oh they would.
Or they would go home and sleep
to wake up in the night
and they were
to go to bed early.
